Waldo's Last Stand (1940)


Published April 18, 1940


The gang offers to help their pal Waldo attract customers to his lemonade stand. Redecorating their clubhouse as a lavish nightclub, the kids stage an elaborate floor show, with Darla Hood as the star vocalist. Unfortunately, their efforts attract only one patron -- a surly, stone-faced little kid with a Popeye-the-Sailor voice (Billy "Froggy" Laughlin, making one of his first Our Gang appearances).

Waldo's Last Stand is a 1940 Our Gang short comedy film directed by Edward Cahn. It was the 193rd Our Gang short (194th episode, 105th talking short, 106th talking episode, and 25th MGM produced episode) that was released.

I posted this on YouTube because it was public domain, (since their policy clearly states that public domain material is permitted)it stayed up for about 3 months and YouTube just informed me this morning that they pulled it due to a copyright claim by Warner Bros. Entertainment. :-/

Thank you sooo much...I thought this was public domain and that was why I posted it in the first place. I did post a comment on Warner Bros. Entertainment's youtube page with the following links you provided. I'll leave it alone for now. But I definitely believe users should have the right to post items of public domain without threats of legal action.
